About Me

Erin LevineI am a Certified Family Law Specialist* and since 2005, have practiced solely in the East Bay community that I love. In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a passionate business owner and entrepreneur and enjoy developing relationships with various local professionals in our community who often play a significant role in the outcome of family law matters.

By maintaining relationships with local experts such as co-parenting counselors, forensic accountants, judicial officers, mediators and child custody evaluators, I firmly believe that my clients benefit from a more holistic approach to legal problem solving.

My approach to family law is guided by my own experience with the legal system. When I was a child, I was the victim of violence. As a teen, I was the plaintiff in a civil action and a witness in a criminal action. It was stressful, intimidating, and confusing. It felt as if procedure triumphed over substance. I don’t want you to feel that way, ever. It’s disempowering and unproductive. It leaves you exhausted instead of ready to embark on a fresh start. My style is to keep my focus on your family and your issues.

We will assess what your needs are and tailor our services to maximize your benefit. We will work together to craft cost-effective resolutions with your goals and intentions in mind. You are the one who knows what is best for you and your family, not me. It is not in my makeup to judge you or your story – in fact, I celebrate diversity and am always up for a good challenge. I want you to feel well equipped to make whatever decision is in your best interest – whether that means negotiating an agreement, or pushing the matter through trial. Whatever path we take, I am most proud when a client can look back at his or her experience with me and my firm and feel that they have been well advised, represented and supported.

Outside of the office, I spend most of my time parenting two kids, exploring the bay area and other unique locations with my family, practicing yoga, watching foreign films, discovering new music, working on our ‘sister’ site, Hello Divorce, and listening to Ted Talks. In my ‘former’ life, I was an elite gymnast and Waldorf student.
